Fuel derived from hemp seed oil and hemp hurd is referred to as “hempoline.” These fuels are cheap and renewable and could be used to power most engines, including diesel automobile engines.
How it’s Made:
Hemp is a renewable resource that grows quickly and could potentially replace the need for fossil fuels.
Hemp biofuel can fuel a diesel engine without any further modifications.
Looking to the Future:
The Department of Energy has given a $1.8 million grant to researchers to develop a pilot biodiesel production facility which plans to create biodiesel from a range of sustainable resources, including hemp (6).
